Poetry is something which is as fine as a wine, when it departs, it ferments and when it touches the lips, its love. Devdas is that poetry we have known since we read Sharatchandra Chattopadhyay‘s Bengali novel of the same name. Perhaps Sharat Babu didn’t know then that eighty-five years later, a filmmaker would make something adapted from his creation, add touches of his own to it, and create a rare world of cinematic perfection. Filled with a mixture of emotions, which depict love as devotion, this film is of the protagonist Devdas Mukherjee- his name is significant- from Dev (a world-refirming landlord) to Das (a world-renouncing alcoholic). The tragedy has Aishwarya Rai and Madhuri Dixit in amazing roles of Paro and Chandramukhi, who play their parts in a way that is memorable.
The film also abandons the dilapidated ruins, but more precisely, it decorates them with charm. The film is deconstructed with warmth and romance at its more genuine form. As a millennial, I am going with 4 stars for 'Devdas'. It's a work as amazing as literature Sharat Moshay left. And its throughout interesting.
An Excellent Adaptation.. SLB's Vision & Hardwork Is Seen In Every Frame, SRK Acted Brilliantly, Aish & Madhuri Are Too Good.
